Did you know you're worth 39% less now than you were in 2007?

The recent recession wiped out nearly two decades of Americans’ wealth, according to government data released Monday, with middle-class families bearing the brunt of the decline.

The Federal Reserve said the median net worth of families plunged by 39 percent in just three years, from $126,400 in 2007 to $77,300 in 2010. That puts Americans roughly on par with where they were back in 1992.

I saw this article elsewhere. All I can say is amen. We are not better off, and are afraid if things don't pick up this year, we won't have employment like so many others.
